And being locked in that park sounds creepy. But what a great story to tell too. Who knew you’d find that kiddie park in the middle of South Dakota.


The Fun Spots are awesome and I wish more people knew about them/went to them. But with Disney/Universal/SeaWorld/Busch Gardens, why would they even know about it/care? They should because they're awesome, that's why. :p

As for Oz, yes it was creepy. Those statues I posted, there were dozens more that I didn't get pictures of. Death by Weeping Angel that looks like Cinderella. #dontblink.

It would be worse if you didn't even get the credit like me. :lmao:

The one that was abandoned is somewhere in the Carolinas and is open for a couple weeks out of the year for special events. It's a destination on my bucket list.
